Last week, SAWEETIE turned up with a fiery “ANTI” (Freestyle) music video—originally premiered by Rap-Up. Cruising in a classic car, she unloads a barrage of rhyme fury in the grainy seventies-style clip. Prior to the arrival of the EP, she appeared in CR Fashion Book, and VIBE claimed, “The fierce competitor is out to show listeners that women in rap don’t need to follow anyone’s blueprint.” She’s living up to those words!
Featuring production from heavy hitters like Zaytoven and Cash Money AP,High Maintenance properly introduces SAWEETIE. From the infectious energy and deft wordplay of “B.A.N.” to a wavy send-off on the lush and lively “Too Many,” it highlights every facet of this formidable force.
To celebrate High Maintenance’s impact, SAWEETIE took the stage at The FADER Fort and both the Pandora and HipHopDX showcases at SXSW in Austin, TX and brought the house down.
